to improve the   quality   of  elementary  and   secondary  education   by
influencing teacher recruitment and personnel systems; and

stimulate research, development, demonstration, and related activi-
ties to focus on unmet national elementary and secondary education
needs, particularly those identified by the National Commission on
Excellence in Education.

o     Through the National Diffusion Network, to

disseminate more information in the Secretary's priority areas,
especially in technology applications, adult literacy, and teaching
of math and science;
